Introducing the SEAT Arona

Small crossovers are some of the most popular choices on the new and used car market at the moment. So, it's no surprise to see that Spanish giants, SEAT, have waded in with their take on what a compact SUV should offer.

As it so happens, they've done an excellent job. The Arona offers all the road-going manners of a smaller car, while giving you all the space you'd expect from a car in this class. As a result, you get all the benefits that come with an SUV without it feeling overly cumbersome to drive.

As you'd expect from a company such as SEAT, the Arona is loaded with plenty of technologies to make daily driving that bit more comfortable.

Design and Practicality

SEAT Arona Exterior, Rear

The new Arona is unmistakably SEAT with its sharp and stylish silhouette, which is complemented by an array of two tone colour variants. A feature we particularly like is the option to contrast the roof colours with the body, leaving you with a contemporary looking SUV.

Full LED headlights ensure you can see further ahead, as well as mark your arrival because of their slick integration into the Arona's front-end which also features an eye-catching grille and fog light design.

Despite its compact nature, the Arona is brimming with space inside. There's plenty of head room in the back for taller passengers, while the Isofix anchor points make it a doddle to fit a child seat. Head to the boot and you will find 400 litres of space to utilise.

Technology and Safety

SEAT Arona Interior

The Arona has all you need to keep connected to the digital world. Wireless phone charging and connectivity hub makes life easier, and sets you free from annoying and restrictive cables. Keyless entry enables unproblematic convenience, along with a stunning 8" Media System Plus - featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

For lovers of music, you can select an Arona that comes fitted with BeatsAudio™, which utilises a 300W amplifier, six speakers and a high-end subwoofer to bring you crisp melodies and fulfilling levels of bass and treble.

Safety is of paramount importance in the new Arona. Autonomous emergency braking features, along with six airbags and blind spot detection for your peace of mind. The Arona even features a clever tiredness recognition system.

Economy and Performance

SEAT Arona Side Profile

A pair of low-emission, 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engines kick things off with either 95 or 110hp. Don't let their humble size put you off, because the addition of a turbocharger has made them surprisingly spritely when accelerating. Expect around 57 mpg from these motors.

Those who want a bit more Spanish zest in their lives will need to opt for the 1.5-litre turbocharged engine that is available on higher-spec models. 0-62 mph takes just 8.2 seconds as a result.

Those who require enhanced economy (up to 71 mpg) can opt for either a 1.6-litre 95 or 115 bhp diesel engine, too. With varying levels of performance, the Arona is also offered with either a slick five or six-speed manual, as well as an effortless seven-speed DSG automatic transmission.
